PowerUp Box

This box was sent to SciFiChick.com for review.

PowerUp Box

I received August’s box for review. The theme seemed to be Animation.

PowerUp Box

Transformers Tshirt (Retail $10?) – Since this was a review box, all they had left was XXL, so it’s quite big. Subscribers will get the size they request. Even though this is huge, I love it. It’s a very soft vintage look and feel. Plus, I love Transformers. It’s a bummer that they didn’t have my size, but it’ll be a nice sleep shirt!

PowerUp Box

TMNT Mystery Mini (Retail $6.99) – I’m a Turtles fan and love Funko mystery boxes. These are almost always a win for me.

The Simpsons Shot Glass (Retail $3.75) – I hate the Simpsons, but this is just a filler item. And it does fit the theme.

Tweety Iron-On Patch (Retail $3.99) – I quit collecting patches in middle school, but I have niece who will love this.

Transformers Plastic Head Candy Container (Retail $1?) – My nephew loves Transformers (of course). This will be a nice treat for him.

PowerUp Box

Futurama Bender Funko POP! (Retail $11.80 on Amazon currently) – Usually, I love Funko items, especially POPs! But I’m not a fan of Futurama, so this may be the only Funko POP that I don’t keep around.

Sonic Stress Ball (Retail $8.99) – The kids in my life love Sonic, tho don’t really have any stress in their lives yet. Still, this will be a cute toy for one of them.

Summary: The value is certainly worth the cost of this fun subscription box. Even though the theme wasn’t geared toward me, I’ll still keep a couple things and give the rest to the young ones in my life. I’m impressed with the value, for being one of the cheaper geeky boxes out there!


September’s theme is PIXELS, so that will be another fun box for youngsters and the young at heart!
